Sex Change

Posted on

Though 14-year-old Washington, D.C., trio Trans Am is ostensibly an indie rock band, what they really play is a kind of prog-rock/disco hybrid, mostly instrumental — which, judging from the vocals on Sex Change, their eighth album, is probably a good thing. Their moments of guitar shredding (”Shining Path”) could bang only the dweebiest heads, but their grooves stick surprisingly well (”North East Rising Sun”), while ”4,738 Regrets” sounds like the best cable-access theme ever. Handy for those times you wish the mid-’90s had never ended.
